In 2010 after drinking yet another cup of average coffee, Koffee Kult's founder began the quest for a better cup of coffee. They believed that roasting their own coffee would be the only way to get better coffee in their cup. After a long quest of finding a coffee roaster and sourcing coffee beans, our first batch of roasted coffee dropped into the roaster cooling bin in early 2012.
Koffee Kult's first coffee roaster was a 15 kilo Ambex knock-off we named Little Blue. It roasted 18 pounds of coffee per batch. This machine now sits in the front window as a display.
Back in 2012 roasting coffee was merely a hobby. There was no need for a business name at the time as it was just to roast better coffee for our founder.
However, sharing roasted beans with our friends and family sparked a demand for more coffee. Soon friends of the founder's friends were offering money in order to get a bag of freshly roasted coffee. This lead to Center Stage Coffee being formed as it was required to open a business and banking account.
